This week’s Council Winner is Dr. Sanity for her “La Belle Indifference.” I know she translates it to English for us dummies, but “La Belle” has always been one of my favorite medical terms, along with the Islets of Langerhans. “Where you going on vacation this year?” Oh, probably the Islets of Langerhans. The wife likes it there.”
Anyway, the good doctor has a definition of conversion hysteria and a practical application of this disorder to the news of the day as filtered through the questionable mental apparatus of the MSM. Go read it just for her table. I hope it spreads through the blogosphere.
The Non Council King of the Hill is the Jawa Reports Kos Says U.S. Torture ‘Equal’ To that of Saddam Hussein (A Comparison). Recommendation: don’t go there if you suffer from PTSD. It’ll trigger you for days. I’m still looking for the door. The rest of you, please go. Witness must be borne.
Also to be recommended is Varifrank’s I’ve Got a Bad Feeling Aout This. And here’s what he has a bad feeling about:
The end result of this “Shark Summer” process will be for the Democrats to push for impeachment of the President some time during the summer of 2005; the groundwork is already being laid for this action this summer. The Democrats are trying to get traction on something, anything to allow them to drive home to an impeachment trial on which they will end the Bush Legacy.
Each week there are so many good posts to read. Try the Education Wonks if you want to be truly disturbed about fraud and waste in our schools. Those criminals put the Third World baksheesh mentality to shame.
For comic relief, read Dennis the Peasant and see justice done as Hop Sing, the Mexican houseboy with the dead armadillo, puts the rich kid in her place.
It’s all here thanks to the Watcher of Weasels.
Wow – the Education Wonks is scary.
That is precisely why we homeschool.
Thank you for these excellent links!
Air Force Wife,
I am a contracted teacher of homeschoolers, and Education Wonks makes the case for homeschooling.
Make sure you blog roll them. They’re always good. The post they ran on the luxurious digs the Las Vegas school board has –while the kids have trailers with broken A/C units for classrooms…
We homeschooled,too. We live in a rural, poor area. The schools are awful. People are nice, but the schools are simply 4th rate.
